THE FATIMA CRUSADER
Issue 28

 


This Issue is Dedicated to 
The Sacred Heart of Jesus



We publish this issue at this time aware that the "forces of evil and hatred persist in their destructive activity" as Pope John Paul II stated earlier this year.

It is our purpose to "persist still more together with all the people of good will" to bring peace to the world.

It is clear that the Pope recognizes that peace has not come to the world and that it is our duty to strive to bring peace to the world. It is also clear from the Message of Our Lady of Fatima that there will never be peace until the full Fatima Message is published, understood and obeyed. It is to this end that we continue in our struggle to bring Our Lady's full Fatima Message to you. Only with your help and by the grace of God can we continue to do this because of the very powerful "forces of evil and hatred" operating against Our Lady of Fatima and against us.

Mary is the Mother and Queen of Peace
by Pope John Paul II

Mary Triumphant

Dear Friend of Jesus and Mary

America and the Free World are on the Brink of Destruction
This article may at first sight appear to be merely a speculation. However, since the United States is in many areas significantly weaker than the Soviet Union (i.e. military armaments in the U.S. are on the decline while Russia is building up its supplies of armaments), the events in this article could very well happen in the future.

The Soviet Orchestrated Global Drug Network (Part II)
by Donald S. McAlvany
In 1917, Our Lady of Fatima warned that Russia will spread its errors throughout the world if that country is not properly consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, as She requested. The errors being spread by Russia include drug addiction of many North American youths. It is important that we realize the source of these drug errors and the spiritual solution that Our Lady of Fatima told us we must take to stop this drug war. Here is Part II of the article.

The Church Has the Duty to Condemn and Combat Communism
by Father Paul Kramer, B.Ph., S.T.B., M.Div., S.T.L. (Cand.)
Marx was not a humanitarian who desired the betterment of the human race, but a satanist who lusted for humanity's ruin. Therefore the Church has the duty to condemn and fight against Marxism completely. This article reveals the true role and purpose of communism and its leaders.
